I recently found an old wallet from somewhere I lived years ago. In it I re-discovered old library cards, bank cards, etc. Instead of throwing them out, I grabbed my snips and made myself some guitar picks! For softer strengths, use milk jugs or plastic lids.

They'll work, that's for sure. Might not be exactly what you want at the time, but they'll get you though the night if needs be. This is the voice of experience speaking. LOL
I teach elementary music and have found a free pick for the autoharp or guitar: the plastic piece that comes from the handle of a gallon milk jug. Yes, there is a hole there for you to grasp the handle but many times you can find the plastic piece that was in the hole either still there or fallen to the bottom of the cooler.
Would it be possible to reuse those plastic tabs or the clip seal on many loaves of bread as guitar picks? Could they work in a pinch? Alternative uses for a better tomorrow.
